Almost-clean orangish color. Smells hops and something sweet. Good aroma. Not too bitter but very drinkable. I like it, no doubt. You may remark it lacks some strength but it is a hones and well done IPA. Thumbs up!

Pretty nice beer. Only problem I had with this one is that I just before ordered a Summer Ale from the same brewer. Wich wouldn’t be a problem if it wasn’t exactly the same taste. It’s still a nice beer, but I have to give it a penalty for being a copy of another beer they brew. (but maybe they accidentally connected the wrong keg or something so I will re-evaluate this beer if I get the chance).

Douberd (2217) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle 330ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6% Deep golden orange colour, clear body, small and thin white head, with low retention, leaving minimal lacing on the glass. Weird aroma, some manure, white sour grapes. Taste also a bit weird, some sourish notes, white grapes, yeast, this is more like a saison. Some peaches too. Medium thin body, high carbonation. Tart on the mouthfeel, once again reminding a saison. I don’t know, something wrong with my bottle? This is not an IPA, not an american, an english or even a belgian style one. As I’ve already mentioned is more of a saison and even then not a very good one.

Rune (7988) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2014
330ml bottle picked up at De Bierkoning in Amsterdam. Hazy orange coloured body. Spotty lacing from a frothy white head. Fruity hops on the nose, hints of fresh apricot. Mixed fresh citrus taste of lemon and orange on a backbone of wheat. Nice bitter round off. Fine bodied. Succulent and tasty (Cabin at the riverboat Serenade 1 on its way to France, 25.07.2014).

300ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Dishwatery aroma. Orange, small head. Sweet sticky malts, fruity. But a big fat meh. Palate is flat. Poor IPA.

rlgk (10275) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle, thanks to Cunningham. Clear golden beer with a decent offwhite head. Hoppy grassy caramel aroma, herbal, some grapefruit. Hoppy caramel flavor, biscuits, citrus, hay, floral notes. Slightly thin bodied but a decent summerbeer.

Marduk (2649) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 13, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear golden color. No head, flat. Minerals, sour, grainy aroma. Malty, corny, sweet taste. Sweet aftertaste. Bland and watery.

Jur (293) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2014
Looks like Irish coffee. Smells like moscato grapes. Very boozy flavour, saison there, faint - with hard candy finish, despite the fair 6,5%

Bottle @ Papsø, gusher. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma is hops, mild toasted malts, grapefruit, red apple and straw. Taste is light+ sweet and bitter. Body is light+, texture is oily, carbonation is moderate. Finishes dry and light hoppy.
